A crown is a cap placed over your existing tooth or molar to restore its shape and function in a durable manner. This is particularly necessary when a large piece is missing or there is a large filling in the tooth.
A bridge is a row of crowns attached together, used to replace missing teeth and molars. The treatment consists of at least 2 appointments. Crowns are made of ceramics and occasionally metal, by a dental technician. The first appointment is for preparation in order to place the crown or bridge. The second appointment is to fit the crown and to have it cemented into your mouth.
If you have a missing tooth or molar, or if you have a tooth with a large filling or a piece missing, a crown or bridge may be necessary. These restorations are custom-made to match the color and shape of your existing teeth and are a long-lasting solution to restore the function and appearance of your teeth. At our practice, we use state-of-the-art materials and techniques to ensure that your crown or bridge is durable, functional, and aesthetically pleasing.
